Property Description

This lovingly restored landmarked four story single family Circa 1897 limestone townhouse designed by the renowned 20th century Architect John J. Petit is a real showstopper! Updated to include all of the state of the art features one would expect for today's modern lifestyle while preserving the architectural integrity of this historic home. Enjoy casual living at its best in the massive recently reimagined open plan garden level. The large living area is the perfect place to sit back and take in the warmth and the flickering glow from the wood burning fireplace on a cold winter's day, or just watch TV. The central dining area with custom built-in cabinetry is perfect for an intimate dinner yet has room to spare to host a large gathering of friends or family. The huge chef's kitchen that even Yotem Ottolenghi would adore boasts a six burner Wolf stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Bosch dishwashers, and extra-large statuary marble island that provides seating, storage as well as plenty of room for food-prep. Floor to ceiling glass doors lead to the deep back yard with privacy fencing, stone and natural surfaces, and great outdoor kitchen! There is also a powder room on this floor, and access to the basement with its large climate controlled wine cellar. Light streaming through south facing windows and leaded glass naturally illuminate the pristine original wood and plaster details of the formal triple parlor level. Impressive front parlor pier mirrors and chandelier add to its wonderful open and airy feel. The coffered ceiling central music room flanked by columns and arches has an original cozy nook with an upholstered bench seat with storage built into the side of the center staircase, and a fireplace mantel with mirror. The formal dining room/library with tall French windows overlooking the garden we are told was inspired by the Moorish Room in the Brooklyn Museum and The Morgan Library, and is truly unique and a joy to behold. The spacious and tranquil master bedroom with three south facing windows spans the width of the property, and features a seating area, and a large electric fireplace surrounded by hand-painted Italian tiles. The spa like master bath has everything one would wish for and more including a steam shower and two walk in closets. There is another generous sized bedroom and marble tiled bath as well on this level. The top floor has three more bedrooms, a beautiful marble bathroom plus an extremely large central laundry room with plenty of built-ins and storage, and a leaded glass skylight. Other features of this 100% move in ready home include zoned central air conditioning, radiant heated bathroom floors, CAT 6 wiring throughout, security system, and a full basement. "Brooklyn's bedroom community, Lefferts Gardens, and its historic district, Lefferts Manor, have an array of architecturally diverse homes. The quiet residential neighborhood of Lefferts has architecture ranging in style, including Victorian, Neo-Renaissance, Romanesque Revival, Neo-Georgian, Federal and Tudor - a far greater variety than one finds in typical brownstone Brooklyn. These two-story, three-story and four-story homes were built from 1890 to the 1920s, whereas most of the detached homes were built a bit later, towards the 1930s and 40s.
